COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars said Tuesday that he has addressed a viral video showing a woman dancing on Urban Meyer with the coach.
Meyer, who coached Ohio State from 2012 to ’18, is in his first season with the Jaguars. After a game Thursday in Cincinnati, he stayed in Ohio, and over the weekend the video went viral, apparently shot at a restaurant that Meyer owns in the Short North.
“I have addressed this matter with Urban,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said. “Specifics of our conversation will be held in confidence. What I will say is his conduct last weekend was inexcusable. I appreciate Urban’s remorse, which I believe is sincere.
“Now, he must regain our trust and respect. That will require a personal commitment from Urban to everyone who supports, represents or plays for our team. I am confident he will deliver.”
Meyer said Monday that he apologized to team members and his family for being a distraction, calling it “stupid” and saying, “I should not have put myself in that kind of position.”
Khan’s statement came out amid reports of “closed-door” meetings at Jaguars offices over a “morals clause” that could lead to Meyer being fired for violating his contract. Khan did not address those reports in his statement.
The Jaguars are 0-4 and next play the Tennessee Titans, who are coached by Mike Vrabel, an assistant under Meyer at Ohio State.
